. . .
A young boy named Mahito
yearning for his mother
ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead.
There, death comes to an end,
and life finds a new beginning.

A semi-autobiographical fantasy
about life, death, and creation,
 in tribute to friendship,
from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.
It continues to play locally at AMC Loews Waterfront and the Cinemark theater in Robinson, and tickets are available online.
